Description

There are three cracks on the west face of the Throne with anchors at their top, though we only had time to climb the left two. There is a fantastic belay ledge that comfortably fit four climbers. The anchor on the 5.9+ crack consists of a good looking bolt and a brand new pink tricam (I replaced the rotten pinky originally there) equalized through two rap rings. The anchor on the 5.10 layback is webbing over a bomber horn and two 'biners.

Protection

Cams with doubles of 0.75, 1, and 2. Set o' nuts. The cracks take bomber gear all the way up.

Great cracks for rest day cragging. It looks like you could push the routes higher if you wanted to make a go at the west face itself. Jul 15, 2012
The rightmost of three cracks, not described here, is an excellent 5.10b/c corner with a fun roof just before the anchor (3/8" bolt and equalized nut). May 20, 2013
